“Environment is calming, relaxing, and welcoming”

by Yidan S.

Environment is calming, relaxing, and welcoming. The staff were patient and gave me professional suggestions on how to improve my skin condition. I was nervous before walking in but felt very much released after leaving the place. 10/10 recommend for those who don't have lots of experience in facial cosmetics.

Benefits of Asian Rhinoplasty

As performed by our skilled plastic surgeons at Cara Plastic Surgery & Laser Center in Los Angeles or Orange County, an Asian rhinoplasty procedure can:

  • Balance and refine the nasal structure
  • Make the nose more defined
  • Improve the length and shape of the nasal tip
  • Correct a flat appearance of the nose
  • Enhance and improve definition of the bridge
  • Improve breathing (when a deviated septum is corrected)
  • Dramatically enhance overall facial appearance
  • Boost self-esteem

What Makes Asian Rhinoplasty Such a Popular Procedure? 

The goal for our Asian rhinoplasty Los Angeles patients is to sculpt and refine nasal structure to create a nose that blends perfectly with your unique brow, eyes, cheekbones, and mouth. Asian patients generally have a wider face and the nasal bridge tends to be shallow and flat, which makes the face appear even wider. 

Asian faces may have an underdeveloped middle portion, which can create the appearance of flatness. If this midface is significantly underdeveloped, then facial bone surgery is necessary; however, mild Asian rhinoplasty (along with pyriform implants) can be performed to correct any midface retrusion.

What Cosmetic Issues Does Asian Rhinoplasty Address? 

Asian rhinoplasty techniques can correct several common cosmetic issues with the nose and bring more balance to the facial features, including:

Bridge of the Nose

To address an underdeveloped nasal bridge, grafting or implants can be used to elevate the area and improve the flat, wide appearance. These implants consist of a silicone shell that is filled with sterile saline solution. Saline implants can be filled after they are placed to allow for minor modifications in size after the procedure and smaller surgical incisions.

Nasal Tip

Because an Asian nose often has weak underlying cartilage and thick skin at the nasal tip, Asian nose surgery often involves increasing the projection and length of the tip. This is accomplished using cartilage grafts to build up the tip. They are placed to provide structural support and long-lasting results.


Nostrils vary widely among Asian patients, but very few require nostril narrowing. However, some patients will want to address their large, wide-set nostrils. Nostril structure may be narrowed when necessary, but in many cases, the nostrils narrow on their own when improvements are made to the tip cartilage.

Facial Harmony with Asian Rhinoplasty

In Asian rhinoplasty, the nose is typically restructured between the bridge and the tip. The procedure generally involves enlarging and lengthening the nose to balance the width of the face and complement the distance between the eyes. This surgery may also add definition and shape to the nasal tip — a crucial aspect in nose appearance and shape.

For Los Angeles Asian rhinoplasty patients, a less-defined nose with a slightly rounded tip may be recommended to preserve a natural ethnic appearance. However, there is no “one-size-fits-all” ideal Asian nose. The purpose of the procedure is to enhance the features of the individual patient in a manner that enhances overall facial appearance.

By improving the shape and proportions of the nose, our plastic surgeon can correct any imbalance of the facial features. When performed with artistry and skill, a nose job can dramatically improve overall facial harmony, leaving you with a more appealing appearance overall.

Asian Rhinoplasty Procedure Los Angeles 

Dr. Kahng performs all of his outpatient procedures at our AAAASF-certified surgery center in the office with a board-certified anesthesiologist. Asian rhinoplasty is performed under general or intravenous anesthesia for safety purposes. The procedure may be open or closed depending on the extent and nature of restructuring required, but the majority of these procedures are done as an open rhinoplasty for Asian patients.

  • In a closed procedure, all incisions are made inside the nose.
  • In an open procedure, an incision is made across the columella (the narrow strip of tissue separating the nostrils) connecting the incisions inside the nose. If an open procedure is used, Dr. Kahng will place the incision line for minimum visibility.

Grafting may be needed to augment and lengthen the bridge of the nose. Dr. Kahng may use cartilage or bone taken from your own body, or he may use a synthetic implant. The tip of the nose may be sculpted to add projection and definition, and to make the nostrils appear less prominent.
